Byton will offer a premium Hybrid Sales Model (online-to-offline) providing a seamless customer journey, complementary sales channels and price transparency. Based on preferences, customers will be able to switch between channels while having a consistent experience. The first European Byton Place will open in Zurich, Switzerland in the second quarter of 2021. By the end of 2021 Byton and Partners will open around 20 BYTON Places in key European cities.
